    No Hot Zone??!!

    Huh,
    I checked out my local "Find it In Store" link for Indianapolis, and out of the 6 availale locations, only 2 of them listed said they were out of stock. I called 2 of the other 4, and neither one had it in their computer or physically on the shelves. The website doesn't seem to have a link for Hot Zone either, doing a titanium search, or a search for Transformers Hot Zone comes up blank. Well, since its free shipping over $50, maybe I won't bother hunting and just get a deluxe and HZ and Thrust. Optimus looks like a waste of moolah.

    G.a.P.

    A few of my local Targets apparently have them in stock, including one that I stopped by today that didn't have any out on the shelves yet. I wouldn't mind getting Thrust, but he's not a big enough priority for me to try getting stuff pulled from the stockroom. If I see him on shelves, I'll get him then.

    God....talk about a line that seriously just needs to die already... they're awful sculpts, off-balanced with heavy, chip-happy metal, and way too expensive for the size.

    And now: MORE REPAINTS.

    Cancel this and bring back alts. Even FAKE alts without real car licenses would be better than this garbage.

    Seeing all the negative reviews Titaniums have gotten I'll pass on these.
    I deem these figures Officially MEH'ED

    I don't know......I've always been kind of partial to the 6" titaniums. New molds would have been nice, but you can't argue with Thrust and Hotspot in my opinion. I agree that $21 is steep, but all TF prices have basically gone up, so I'll deal with it.

    Tell me about it. The only figure out of this line I liked enough to buy was the G1 Ultra Magnus, which I ordered from BBTS. And when it finally showed up, it was missing a friggin tire. As much as I like that figure, it's hard to look at it on my shelf, knowing he's standing on three tires.

    Awesome. Thanks to Target's lame ass policy, two stores wouldn't pull them for me, because they're 'collector's items.' Really? I thought they were made for 7-year-old boys... so I guess I won't give them my money? Oh wait, I have to... they're Target only toys and I want Hot Spot. Awesome.

    Hotspot, hmm... $21 is steep, but it is Hotspot! Gonna have to grab it someday

    They would have replaced it for you, some of the best customer service out there, but I dunno when you got it.
